This is what audiences saw on September 6,1925 at the Astor Theater in New York City. This version is seldom seen and contains materiel that is different from the 1929 re-release. This print is from The Milestone Edition, the score is Mozart's 40th and 4th symphonies and Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 8 in B minor. Directed by Rupert Julian, Edward Sedgwick and Lon Chaney.
To you all I pose a challenge. Combine this version and combine it with the 1929 version to create a higher quality version of this film. The 1929 version can be found here http://www.archive.org/details/ThePhantomOfTheOpera1929
